Food for Hearing

FOOD FOR HEARING Studies show possible links between nutrition and hearing loss. By including the foods listed here in your daily diet, you are taking steps to improve not only your hearing but your general health, too. VITAMIN D is responsible for the absorption of calcium, which is required for us to have strong bones. Sources of vitamin D: Cod liver oil, fish oil, salmon, mackerel, tuna fish, liver and egg yolk. VITAMIN A works in combination with vitamin C and E and magnesium to prevent the formation of free radicals (highly reac- tive substances) that form during noise exposure. Sources of vitamin A: Broccoli, squash, spinach, turnip greens, carrots, canta- loupe, sweet potatoes, pumpkin, apri- cots, liver, milk, butter, cheese, and whole eggs. VITAMIN B12 helps improve hearing by regulating the formation of red blood cells, assisting in the metabolism of homocysteine, and preventing tinnitus. Sources of vitamin 12: dairy products, eggs, lean beef, and shellfish. FOLIC ACID lowers the production of homocysteine, which is thought to be the cause of some types of hearing loss and boosts circulation of blood to the inner struc- tures of the ear. Sources of folic acid: Beef liver, spinach, asparagus, green peas, broccoli, avoca- do, lettuce, peanuts, tomato juice, whole eggs, strawberries, papaya, banana and cantaloupe. MANGANESE improves hearing because it aids in the formation of connective tissues and bones, plus it is also necessary for the normal functioning of the brain and nerves. If you have low levels of manga- nese, you will likely be suffering from tinnitus. Sources of manganese: Apples, apricots, avocado, beans, pineapples, berries, raisins, celery, egg yolks, legumes and pine nuts. OTHER SOURCES Sources of Vitamin C: Broccoli, green and red peppers, cauliflower, cabbage, collard greens, Brussel sprouts, lemon, pineapples, strawberries and citrus fruits. Sources of Vitamin E: Wheat germ, green leafy vegetables, margarine and vegetable oil. Sources of Magnesium: Dairy products, meat, fish, poultry, green vegetables and legumes. Source: xr-3 0--
